Football Tournament

The fourth annual Bayon Cup Invitational Friendly Football Championship was held

in Phnom Penh on May 30-31. Twelve teams entered the event with clubs from Singapore,

Thailand, Vietnam and Taiwan participating.

The Swiss Club-Singapore took first place honors for the second year in a row. The

final match saw Phnom Penh's own Bayon Wanderers pitted against the well-oiled Swiss

football machine.

In spite of the constant exhortations from coach Anthony Alderson, who required a

tin of Strepsil lozenges to assuage a raspy throat, the feisty Wanderers were just

barely nipped 1-0 by the Swiss in the nail-biting tournament climax.
